Seems erythromycin eye ointment and cipro eye drops
are causing extreme weakness in lids and eye muscles. With blurred vision. Slight temp.

Searched and side effects are rare enough none listed.

Seems to clear in few hours. Could this chase the boogers out of my brain?

Or could this be exacerbating a questionable ms diagnosis?

I know that some of the infection/s have settled around my eyes.

Though I have not used the medications you list, I have used anti-bacterial creams and rubbed essential oils near my eyes. Sometimes I feel a little pain there at first, and then nothing. The area feels clear afterward.

If there is an infection there, I don't see why it would not be possible to have a reaction to medicines?

Forgot to mention...

I do rub the oil on my head at night, per directions (and sometimes the anti-bacterial),with the clear intention to 'chase the boogers out.' No mercy.

Whether it would be a good idea to try this with your medicines, I cannot say.
